Nogami was a second lieutenant in the Imperial Japanese Army in the early 20th century. In 1937 Nogami was one of three hundred Humans abducted from Earth by an alien species called the Briori and taken to an unnamed class L planet in the Delta Quadrant. Nogami and seven of the other abductees were put in cryogenic stasis and came to be known to the abductees' descendants as "the 37's". They remained in stasis until the crew of the USS Voyager revived them in 2371.

After being revived, Nogami chose to remain with the Human settlement on the planet when Voyager left to resume its journey back to the Alpha Quadrant, reflecting that he would be very happy living among the descendants of the original Japanese abductees, who had apparently grown into a sizable community since their arrival on the planet. (VOY: "The 37's")

Played by James Saito, Nogami's name was referenced in the script, but never mentioned in dialog.
The Star Trek wardrobe department had paid immaculate attention to the details on Nogami's uniform. His rank insignia were for the time-period correctly placed on the shoulders, as they were after 1940 replaced by slightly redesigned collar insignia. Also abandoned after 1940 was Nogami's wavy emblem he wore on his right breast; the color red of that emblem indicated that Nogami had either belonged to the tank, or infantry branch of the Imperial Japanese Army. Overlooked by he wardrobe department was that there should have been single color, red in Nogami's case, patches present on his left, and right collar.
